Teen suicide

approximentaly 2 million U.S. teens attempt suiside a year and almost 700,000 recieve medical attention for their attempt.and over 1,500 actually die according to N.A.M.I.

-Every day, approximately 112 Americans take their own life.-Ninety percent of all people who die by suicide have a diagnosable psychiatric disorder at the time of their death.-There are four male suicides for every female suicide, but three times as many females as males attempt suicide.-494,169 people visited a hospital for injuries due to self-harm behavior, suggesting that approximately 12 people harm themselves (not necessarily intending to take their lives) for every reported death by suicide.

Apart from the normal pressures of teen life, specific circumstances can contribute to an adolescent's consideration of suicide. It's especially difficult when adolescents are confronted with problems that are out of their control, such as:divorcea new family formation (e.g., step-parents and step-siblings)moving to a different communityphysical or sexual abuseemotional neglectexposure to domestic violencealcoholism in the homesubstance abuse
